My brother purchased a clone of an Apple.  It was called an Orange.    I
always thought that was pretty clever.  (early eighties) :-)

You young whipper-snappers! 

 

By cracky, I remember having to start on an old Osborne 1 'sewing
machine' computer. Z-80 (8 bit) processor, 16kb of RAM, 62 column screen
(had to scroll the screen to read a whole line), and 72KB single-sided
floppies.

 

I was in heaven when some bright, enterprising soul discovered that we
could simply flip the floppies over cut a new read-write notch on the
other side and cut my floppy consumption in half!

 

LOL
